We expect a certain cool girl messiness from Rag and Bone every season. That was the case again for fall 2013, but with a few new (and welcome) twists, and the barest trace of a 60s vibe.
Hair (Guido Palau for Redken): Rag and Bone does the best cool girl hair every season. Unlike the hair at Jason Wu, this one is totally accessible. Palau described it as “feminine but boyish and a bit Edie Sedgwick.” He did a low side part–using Redken Guts for texture, Powder Refresh for that Rag and Bone matte bedhead, and Quick Tease in the pony for the spiky texture. After you rough dry your hair into a side part, drag into low pony, use the product, and pin. But you need it to be a bit disheveled, so then pull out some hair at the crown for a bit of a 60s look.
Makeup (Gucci Westman for Revlon): Westman originally tried a neon orange eye liner but scrapped it because, “The Rag and Bone girl would never wear that on her eyes.” The graphic line was meant to look like the models did it themselves. She didn’t want to get too literal 60s, so the line (using a black gel liner) starts in the middle of the lid rather than at the tear duct, and extends out further than normal–Westman wanted the look to read 60s, but be less referential and retro. She used nude lip color for “healthy Downton Abbey lips.”
